SUMMARY REPORT  ON  PITT MEADOWS AIRPORT(YPK) OPEN HOUSE & AIR SHOW - SUNDAY, JULY 20TH

Despite the occasional rain shower, the Pitt Meadows Open House & Air Show was clearly an unqualified success with more participants and activity than last year.  The PAC Static and Flying Display received an excellent reception by the spectators and much credit is recognized particularly to:  

        1. Paul Bedford & Larry Lewin for securing the necessary arrangements including the excellent location adjacent to the Helipad and the spectator entrance.  Luckily the military helicopter did come in prior to our display set-up.
        2.  Barb & Larry Bell for transporting much of the equipment including Larry's Auto Racing Canopy which, due to occasional rain downpours, proved to be an essential commodity!  Thanks also to everyone who assisted with the set-up and take-down.
        3. Thanks to all the flyers who provided a good show for all the spectators.  Joe Yau wowed them with his precision aerobatics routine.

We also appreciated the presence of the Tim Horton's Van that furnished free coffee, hot chocolate and donuts to modelers and spectators alike!  

The presence of our Regional MAAC Zone Director also did not go unnoticed!

Finally, we extend the Club's appreciation to the Airport Management who invited our club and provided the privilege of participating in a "really fine show" with so many interests & activities. We would certainly look forward to the opportunity to participate again in the future.

Notable people that we talked to were a teacher who asked if our club would be able to do a demonstration/display for her class this fall, a gentleman who used to fly combat, many people who had fathers who flew control line "back in the day", and some who did fly.  It was great talking to all the people.
